Phone service out for small section of Franklin Road

EUGENE, Ore. -- Landline outages were reported for people living in the area east of 30th and Interstate 5 around Franklin Blvd.

Century Link, the service-provider for the area, said it could take several days to fix the damaged lines and restore service to those living near Franklin Blvd. at Seavey Loop.

The Emerald People's Utility District said their phonelines have been affected, but the usual number to report power outages re-directs to a working number.

Police officials said that anyone in the area can still use their cell phones to call 911 and report emergencies.
